The Dark at the Top of the Stairs illustration will appear here.
They had never been upstairs. They promised not to talk about the monster. Giovanni liked this book. He thought it was a little scary. Isaias did not think it was scary, but his favorite part was when the cat?s shadow appeared and the mice heard MEOW. Giovanni?s favorite part was the next part when the mice went slipping, sliding and tumbling down the stairs. He liked the way those words sounded. The next day the mice?s grandfather asked the young mice do you want to play in the yard or visit your cousins in the cornfield. The mice said they wanted to play in the yard near the acorn tree. Upstairs was too scary!
